Sen. Edward M. Kennedy finally at Peace

Paulie Brading

Sen. Kennedy called for universal health care beginning in the 1960's. He fought for four decades pushing for universal health care right up to his death.

"If by a liberal, they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind; someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions; someone who cares about the welfare of the people, their health, their housing, their schools, their civil rights, their civil liberties: someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicion that grips us; if that is what they mean by a liberal, I am proud to be a liberal."

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy 1932 - 2009
